With my busy schedules, sketching allows me to satisfy that need to draw and paint. My sketches are done in Moleskine sketchbook, 5 1/2 by 8 1/2. I usually have my TWSBI fountain pen with Noodler’s Lexington Grey ink and waterbrush attached to the Moleskine. If I have time in the early morning brushes and water on the dining table ready for a quick watercolor painting. And of course, my coffee.
Another attempt to paint this model, Dominic.
A few years ago I painted this model in a live session. Fortunately I took a photo of her and found it recently. I still remember the look she had when posing in this derby hat.
Available for purchase at my Etsy shop.
An artist friend of mine has two beautiful greyhound dogs. And they are so friendly.
I wasn’t quite sure of the green background…but somehow it works.
I had been busy with portrait drawings commissions lately. Most of the commissions came from the St. James Holiday Bazaar Annual Sales. Exposure is good!
These portraits were done with graphite and white charcoal on Strathmore Grey Toned Paper. They are sized 10 x 8 inches. Several photos were provided by the client with specific ones to based the drawings from.
